New article out from the Eisen Lab: Isolation and sequence-based characterization of a koala symbiont: Lonepinella koalarum

See Isolation and sequence-based characterization of a koala symbiont: Lonepinella koalarum

Paper based on PhD thesis work of Katie Dahlhausen and wrap up of analysis led by Laetitia Wilkins.

Author: Jonathan Eisen

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
